RFE : compiz viewport support in libwnck
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:08:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When using compiz as WM, the window menu Workspace actions ("Always on Visible
Workspace", "Move to Another Workspace", ...) are lost.
This reduced functionality prohibits the use of e.g. sticky terminal windows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I applied the viewport libwnck patches as referred to in
https://launchpad.net/products/libwnck/+bug/63208. Notwithstanding some hunk
offsets, they apply cleanly against current libwnck.
Unfortunately, the patches lead to erroneous behaviour in the "Workspace
Switcher" applet, and regularly segfault gtk-window-decorator (compiz git 20061116).
For quick testing, a libwnck source rpm with the patches mentioned in comment #1
(applied against current libwnck-2.16.0-4.fc6) is to be found at
At the same location, an updated compiz (see also bug #208044, comment #26),
which is compiled with the patched libwnck-devel is available :
